Failed 2 install Potplayer(64bit) after installin wine64bit

Post by Pranav » Mon Jul 15, 2019 9:19 pm

OS: Ubuntu 19.04
Screenshot: https://imgur.com/M0qO9g7
Waited 10 min to and then i had to just give up.

Wondering if "apt install wine64" is a genuine stuff of not.

Code: Select all

pranav@inspiron-5548:~$ wine --version
wine-4.0 (Ubuntu 4.0-1)
:!: apprently image insert seems impossible, or am i missing something.

Pure 64 bit Wine is not supported; you need to install the 32 bit package as well for WoW64. Follow the instructions on https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu

Than whats the point of giving us an options of Wine64 seperately as if it really works?

Like a fake thing.

When is wine64 will support Win 64 apps ? in 2050?

We don't. The WineHQ 64 bit packages are dependent on the 32 bit package and will pull it in automatically. If your distro's package doesn't do that, complain to them. We have no control over other people's packages.

When 64 bit Windows applications are pure 64 bit--including their installers.
